PlayStation Home v1.86 coming on Weds 12 March, introduces Trophies! *ping*
Wow how late, hope we see a home service on ps4 with vr features
ive been thinking about that since forever! i would want to see home on the psvita as well, cross-play with ps3 or ps4 users. i liked home, a lot. like everyone says: it coulda been so much more.
PlayStation Home is something Sony should wait for to launch on PS4 in the second half of the PS4's life, when the install base is massive. Right now the Home team should take their time on envisioning what a PS4 PS Home should be like and be in no rush to release it till everything is perfect
I remember the original announcement and I couldn't wait for it back then. I do wonder what they have install for the ps4 though....
@abash- definately agree. i think they should use it just for F2P games like the free FPS and MMO's; they have to go through PShome to play them, walk through some advertising billboards and trailers displayed on screens for upcomming games or released games they want people to see/buy etc. (there are going to be a lot of ppl playing the FTP games) party up in home to jump into PlanetSide2 ect. it would be the most benificial way to market stuff, i mean, theyre already being generous enough to let you play free games, why not them take advntage of it? surly people wouldnt mind if theyre getting to play free games, and when theyre not playing they can chill/ talk in home if they want. plus its a good way for ps3 and ps4 users to talk with vitas owners (word of mouth) and amoungst eachother about games and hardware.
I just want central to come back.
Still can`t believe PSHome didn`t come built into the Vita . It would have been amazing on that specially when games were a bit sparse on it . Even if Sony had put Home bundled in on a 4GB in the box . Massive fail from Sony .
I remember when Home was first announced by Phil Harrison and the reveal video showed trophy cabinets where you could see all your earned trophies in 3D and show them off to anyone who could be bothered to visit you're home. At the time it all seemed so exciting! http://www.handytips.info/w... But that was a long, long time ago. Since then I've uninstalled Home never thinking I'd venture back there again, never believing I'd have to watch loads of avatars run about importantly like they've got some place to be. This announcement might just be that you can earn trophies in all those mini-games, but i hope it is the whole trophy cabinet idea. If it is I might have to brush up on my body-popping dance moves...
That takes me back :')
Not being on home for ages so may jump back In and be a tourist for the day *ping*
They should focus all man power on PS4 now (well the guys from Home) Just so MP3's and external HDD can come faster to PS4!
I loved Home. Used it since the beta in November 2008.
Not gonna lie. I forgot this existed. Also...why do they even bother? It was a bad idea to begin with.
They made a lot of money with it. I'm not into Wii Sports but I can't deny that Nintendo cleaned up with it. From what I read, Sony made back Home's dev cost about a month after the beta opened up.
actually the idea was genious but execution was poor.
They have to make Home more about gaming discussion/partying up and less about random nothingness It can still work if done right
True, but for some reason people love random nothingness when they can do it together
Lol I wonder how many people would jump back on this thing for trophies.
Um i am._._._.Lol
Trophy whores of the world UNITE!!! LOL
I jumped back in when they added challenges. You can do them and redeem the points for items. Like pets, costumes and houses.
Oh. Sounds... Fun.
ummm, i'm a little ashamed to say i probably will lol. I used to enjoy Home, but then it just became a bit empty and pointless, even more so as most of my mates just stopped using it too... I'll have a look at the list, and if they seem simple enough i think i'll jump on it for a little while
Trophies for what, Standing around watching people do the running man?
Sadly, if there was one, there would be thousands of people standing there...watching!!! LOL
We told this kid to do that for 45 minutes back when the beta launched, because he wanted our exclusive t shirt. Man that was entertainment.
They should bring this to the ps4 make it like they wanted it to be in the first place should be a mix of 2nd life and minecraft where you can buy stuff with real money and maybe mix the stuff you bought to make something else then be able to sell it for real money that was the original plan maybe they can do it on ps4.
just. let. it. DIE.
GTA Online is what PlayStation Home should have been lol. It's not too bad actually, it's a good platform for playing chess with players online. I see PlayStation home as a chess game lol.
Better late than never, I'm definitely taking a look at that when it arrives :) Vote for Playstation Home @ Gaikai!
